FROM THE NURSE’S OFFICE
I would like to emphasize the importance of working together so that all our students stay as healthy as possible. If one child comes to school sick, the illness spreads quickly to other students and the staff as well as family members.
For this reason, please keep your child home if he /she has any of these
symptoms and seek medical care if problems persist:
- Fever, vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours
- Nasal discharge that is profuse or colored
- Red, inflamed eyes
- Body rash, unless determined non-infectious by a doctor
- A cough which is severe or persistent
- Less than 24 hours on an antibiotic
Reminder: Your child must be “fever free” or “vomit free” or “diarrhea free” for 24 hours without medicine (Motrin, Tylenol or Advil) before they can return to school.
If a physician diagnoses your child with a contagious disease such as chickenpox, strep throat, or pink eye, please keep your child home and notify the school as soon as possible. This information will help us identify new cases early and reduce the spread of illness.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school 620 –8195.
Thank you for your cooperation.
